Your hosts Masa and Junko are experts in the field of Edomae sushi (using fish from the Tokyo Bay) and washoku (traditional Japanese food). Masa was in the export business and often entertained his partners over a homecooked Japanese meal. They enjoyed it so much that they convinced Masa to start a cooking studio to share his passion for food. Masa learned to cook from his parents and further developed his skills by reading books and inviting friends over to try new recipes. After Junko graduated from university she worked at a food company where she cooked every day and developed her culinary skills. She owned a cooking studio herself before joining Masa. Together they offer a variety of cooking classes - sushi, sashimi, tempura, shokado bento and Wagyu beef. Masa and his team delight in showcasing Japanese cuisine and hospitality.
Depending on the day you visit, you might be hosted by Masa or Junko.

We were warmly greeted by Maasa and Junko as we arrived at the cooking school. The school is nicely laid out with a dining table in the front, teaching work space and an open kitchen area. We were walked through each step expertly and patiently (which is very relevant to me?) Knife skills, assembly skills and things to watch for were covered very thoroughly. The results were delicious. I walked away with a new appreciation of the history and love for sushi. Highly recommend this tour.
